Ukraine is fighting for its independence with Panzerhaubitze 2000 and Leopard 2 battle tanks. The needs for 155-mm artillery shells for the howitzer and 120-mm shells for the battle tank are met with the help of Germany."

Details: It is reported that since the beginning of the full-scale war, Ukraine has received significant amounts of ammunition from Bundeswehr storage points.

It is noted that every Bundeswehr procurement project worth more than €25 million must be approved by the German Parliament's budget committee before a contract is signed.
